The Aberdeen Horse Judging team placed fourth at the State FFA Convention held in Twin Falls.

This is the second year in a row the Aberdeen FFA chapter Horse Judging team placed in the top 5 teams. Team members are Emmylou Nugent, Lexie Lehman, Klae O'brien, and Sadie Nugent.

There were over 30 teams from around the state that competed in the event. The students were required to evaluate different breeds and classes of horses, evaluate horsemanship skills, and provide oral reasons for their placings of the classes. The event was very close, only 19 points out of 1300 possible points separated the top 5 teams. The Aberdeen team members plan on working hard over the next year and hopefully placing first at next years event and earning the privilege of representing Idaho at the National event.
